Nice symmetric POV giving a strong graphism helped also by good sharp details. The golden tones are well rendered too.

Since I am writing a book entitled, "Leonardo's Universe," I found the image of the Palazzo Vecchio fascinating. The tile pattern of octagons and squares with astonishing Renaissance era embellishment is beautifully photographed — no distortion in perspective, rich in colors and details. Thanks for letting us all into the Palazzo Vecchio to enjoy this view vicariously.
In 1503-1504 Leonardo and Michelangelo received commissions to compete, each to paint a colossal mural in the Palazzo Vecchio. Leonardo was to paint the Battle of Anghiari, and Michelangelo the Battle of Cascina. The project fell through, ending what would have been the greatest clash of the two titans of the High Renaissance — and perhaps the masterpieces to end all masterpieces.
Warm regards from Virginia, USA

Parabéns e Abraço!

Superb details and clarity of the golden roof. The thumbnail looked like it could be a close up of a fabric design. Impressive. Greetings from a rainy Wash D.C. Danilo

Hi Carlos, beautiful pattern with excellent clarity and well visible details. The gold tone here is beautiful to see and the compo is truly hypnotic!!
Floydian (30970) 2007-12-10 4:34
A very artistic photo, not something i would expect from you. But if you also see these kind of things than you have really a good eye for detail and compositions.
The symmetry here is wonderful, doesn't look like a picture all, more like a kind of painting...very nice.
patdeph (35748) 2007-12-10 9:39

Magnificent recording of this ceiling of Palazzo vecchio. Colors and neatness are fantastic and the perfect centring.
A great realization.
mpdre (1611) 2008-01-29 19:49
Hi Carlos! I like very much this golden photo. It is true that the pattern has an hypnotic effect. Difficult to say why. Probaly the amalgam of points and bars, and the strong colors. It remind me also a persian carpet with interesting patterns. Excellent!!!
bruce_wayne (1507) 2008-02-01 13:16
wonderful picture, this texture has a great clearness and right color...very very well done!
Stepan (27210) 2008-02-22 23:00
Hypnotic, you're right with such a close crop. An interesting macro compo, with a pertinent title. Well done.
pablominto (53744) 2008-11-05 23:14
Seems like you've hit exactly the right angle, resulting in correct lines and fine symmetry!
Super sharp details and the colours are well reproduced....
Amazing to see how much work they put into decoration details in the architecture, also to our pleasure!
